    2 weeings in one year!

    Sitting here on a lazy Sunday watching Say Yes to the Dress, and feeling compelled to leave a review. I have had two, yes, two daughters get married within the same year! Lara’s has been amazing in helping my girls make their dreams turn into reality. They have very different personalities, dreams and ideas of the perfect gown, and Lara’s has come through both times. In addition to finding the perfect gowns, Lara’s has made special accommodations for this out of town mom to make sure I could be part of these special days. Fittings and alterations were easy and seamless, and we have one perfect wedding day in the books and are looking forward to the second! Visit this shop, and meet the accommodating ladies that make it a special place to help you find the perfect dream gown. I just wish I lived closer so they could help with my mother of the bride look!

    I had an amazing experience here.... Summer was such a great help with my wedding dress... I didn't have a lot of money to spend either... she found a dress for me in my price range and didn't treat me any different then if she would have had a 4000 sell...

    I had a great time picking out my wedding dress! Even though there were a couple of other brides doing the same, I felt like the only one in the room. My dress was ordered and very prompt to arrive. And alterations were equally as easy!
